Jail, The Constable & You
You're having a bad day and decide to take it out
on the towns people by casting a maelstorm, killing a few & injuring
many....Before you know it you are whisked off to jail.. and they have stripped
you of ALL the belongings on yer person! ...Then the guards drag you to Moothall
and you are then standng in the courtroom as they slap an enormous fine on
First of all, you should know better than to attack,
kill or maim anyone in town or anywhere else for that matter. Killing someone
is not an acceptable thing to do in Elanthia. This is just one example of
how you will get arrested...You can be thrown in jail for any number of reasons.
Hooliganism -- Most tend to get arrested for hooliganism
such as attacking the town Mutt, Flowergirl, WestGate Guard, The Monk and
other such mischief... The fine is usually about 200 silvers.
Petty Theft -- Thievery of a fellow resident of Elanthia
whether in or out of town is frowned upon by many. If stolen from in town,
usually someone ACCUSEs <person> of STEALING to the constable. The
fine is usually about 100 silvers.
Theft -- A more serious crime where you have tried
to steal from a merchant or shop. The fine is usually about 500 silver.
Assault -- You can get this one by attacking a resident
with spells or your fist but not killing them. The fine is usually about
250 silver if ACCUSEd and found guilty.
Assault with a Deadly Weapon -- A more serious crime
of assault. This is if you use a weapon of sorts to attack another person
but not killing them. The fine usually starts at about 1,000 silver if ACCUSEd
and found guilty.
Endangering Public Safety -- Casting any form of area
spell like a cloud, tremor, or implosion will land you in jail (even trying
to blast open boxes with call lightning). The fine is usually about 5,000
Murder -- Killing a fellow resident or several residents
in town. It doesn't matter how they ended up dying or how long after you
had attacked them that they did die. If they die in town, you get arrested,
no acceptions. The fine varies here. Nobles tend to end up paying more, but
the fine is always high regardless and goes up per victim. EX: Jypta accidentally
casted implosion in the catacombs, killing 4.. and being a Noble, the judge
was far from leniant...her fine was 2million <cringe>
High Treason Against The State -- Attacking the constable
is not a smart idea The fine for attacking the constable is 50,000
Paying The Fine
When thrown in jail, everything that you were wearing
and all else in your containers at the time of your arrest is placed into
a box at the constable's office.
When you do go to trial they will give you a one hour
time limit from the moment you come before the court..but you may actually
only have 30 minutes to get your items back.
Do not take your time trying to pay the fine! To pay
your fine you can do one of two things. You can get the silvers if you have
them (or borrow from friends) and pay off your debt at the town clerk/bondsman.
Or you can go to the bank and try to WITHDRAW and DEPOSIT until the constable
steps in to take your silvers away from you.
If you are unable to pay the fine within the given
time, Everything in the box is gone forever.
